Six years ago I started a blog about a car. A lilac colored 1966 Volkswagen Bug to be specific. My parents were restoring it for me as a birthday present. I anticipated driving that thing all over the country having adventures. I was in my second year of college and I had no job and no money to continue the restoration so it sat in my mother’s garage. I began working for Walmart the following year and finally had a little spare cash to start throwing at it. You can find all the details of the attempted restoration on my old blog www.purplebugproject.blogspot.com.

This blog is no longer about that car. This blog is now about my life in beautiful Duluth, Minnesota. I’m in my late twenties and I work for a major retailer that is slowly killing my soul. In my free time I’m trying to write the next bestseller in teen fiction. I browse Pinterest for new recipes to feed my husband and and I’m constantly try to organize my chaotic home.
